Technical Reference Materials: Generic Training Materials for MMS in Pregnancy

This document is part of a series of Technical Reference Materials (TRMs) prepared by the Nutrition Program at the New York Academy of Sciences (NYAS) to support the distribution of multiple micronutrient supplements (MMS) to pregnant women in the context of Antenatal Care (ANC) programs. This present document describes the generic training materials and job aids developed to support the use of MMS in low and middle income countries (LMICs). It needs to be adapted to each country context, taking into account the specifics of the ANC program (e.g. the level of decentralization of services, personnel qualifications, etc.); the type of Health Management Information System in that particular country and other local aspects (transport, storage infrastructure, etc.).
